We here at MUZU.TV thought that it would only be fair to write a blog in rememberance of the songs that never (but should have) made it as the Christmas number one! Don’t agree? Then leave your comments below.
This cover of Leonard Cohen’s classic song was originally released on Jeff Buckley’s album ‘Grace’ in 1994. However, due to a huge fan campaign, Buckley’s cover of the song re-entered the UK charts last Christmas at number two! The song was narrowly beaten to the number one spot by Alexandra Burke’s cover version of the same song!
Jeepster was released by British Glam Rock band, T-Rex in 1971. The single was beaten to the top spot by Bennie Hill with his single ‘Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West)”. The band later came to an abrupt end in September 1977 when lead singer for the band Marc Bolan, died in a car crash.
Vanilla Ice (a.k.a Robert Van Winkle) released his single in 1990. The single features samples from Queen and David Bowie’s single ‘Under Pressure’. The song was beaten to the number one spot by Cliff Richard and his single Saviours Day .
